We wanted a Thanksgiving craft that we could make with our 15 month old, but our baby girl is a very mouthy baby - she eats everything, so it's made crafting with her much more of a challenge. To get around this we decided to substitute pudding for paint for this cute turkey craft. The final turkey doesn't last very long (it is made of pudding after all), but it's the process of making the craft that is the most fun. We did this as a family, with both our 15 month old and 5 year old at the same time and it was a blast. Sometimes the craft is less about what you make and more about the time you spend together making it. So roll up your sleeves (or in the case of the baby, put them in just a diaper and their highchair), smear some pudding before adding the turkey features and don't forget to laugh! **As always, please supervise any and all parts of a craft done with small children. Our older daughter finished the baby's turkey craft by adding the smaller pieces to the pudding smear. Do not give your small child anything that could be considered a choking hazard!!
